Geist (Marvel)
Real Name: Nikolaus Geist
Search for 'Geist (Marvel)' on Amazon


Powers:
Geist possesses a cybernetic left arm and an exoskleton which covers most of his body. While he does have a number of weapons and attachments, the bulk of his exoskeleton is dedicated to preserve his aged form. His physical form is in the neighborhood of 100 years old, and it is dependent on the exoskeleton for survival. His robotic left arm possesses a removavle hand, which can be replaced with a number of attachments. These include a conventional hand, dart gun, straight razors, and several others.

Geist is a shrewd negotiator and a valued advisor. However, he possesses loyalty only to himself, and will abandon a plot when it begins to turn sour. He's also got this major aversion to hair of any sort, and is always trying to shave everyone.

Bio:
Geist had been an advisor for Adolf Hitler during WWII, and gave Hitler ideas on how to run the concentration camps. To escape war crime punishment, he used German rocket scientists to help the OSS. He later participated in questionable CIA operations. During Wolverine #17 and later issues, however, he was an advisor to President Caridad, of the fictional South American country Tierra Verde. Caridad wanted Geist to create a superhero and champion for Tierra Verde, much like Captain America. He was experimenting on humans with a special crop of cocaine, which drove the victim mad. His main guinea pig was Roughouse. Wolverine learned of this, and even though Roughouse had been his enemy, he helped him escape.

Wolverine cut off Geist's metal shell, leaving him to die. However, Geist somehow escaped. Soon after, Magneto caught up with him and apparently killed him.
